Anniversary Sale Spotlight – April Favorites

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

The April portion of our Anniversary Sale is winding down and these yarns will be back to full price on Sunday morning. Don’t miss your chance to snap up some incredible deals! I thought I’d share 3 of my favorite yarns from this part of the sale, and the projects I might be stashing them for (wink, wink).

eco wool

Cascade Eco Wool. When they were younger my kids used to call these my yarn babies, because they are absolutely huge skeins! 478 yds, of a bulky weight, gorgeously lofty Peruvian wool in the earthy, natural colors of the wool itself, this yarn is fantastic for warm and cozy sweaters and as a beautifully neutral backdrop for blankets. The Pop Blanket from Tin Can Knits is the perfect example. Shown here with Noro Kureyon as the bright center circles, this could easily be a scrap busting pattern with the Eco Wool gloriously framing those bits and bobs of yarn you just couldn’t let go of. Think of it as a memory quilt, here are little framed bits of yarns you loved to work with, and for projects like that the frame can be just as important!

alpaca sox

Classic Elite Alpaca Sox. I remember making a pair of socks as a store sample in this yarn when it first arrived. I did not want to give them back! The yarn felt amazing in my hands as it glided across my needles and the finished fabric was soft and cozy. While it makes amazing socks this yarn also knits up into beautiful shawls and lightweight but warm accessories! The Wavelength Shawl features a center panel of stunning lace bordered by easy-peasy garter stitch, with a delicate lace border. This is a great project to cut your teeth on lace! The lace panel is isolated in the middle of the shawl giving your brain and hands lots of time to relax in the garter stitch sections.

silk garden sock

Noro Silk Garden Sock. A perennial favorite, this yarn glows with all the amazing color changes that Noro has become famous for, and at the lighter sock weight it becomes the perfect choice for lightweight accessories with tons of color impact! For knitters the Mitered Wrap showcases those color changes in the meandering corners of a wrap that will result in  oohs and aahs everywhere you go.  And crocheters can experience equal public curiosity and excitement with Linda Permann’s Circles Scarf. While this may look like a pile of tiny yo-yo’s that have been joined together after being made, Linda actually has a genius way of making these as you go along – only two ends to weave in!

knitters pride

And don’t forget your tools! We have some pretty spectacular hooks and needles in the sale and you’ll want to grab a set. The Knitter’s Pride Dreamz line of needles and hooks feature a different color of laminated birchwood for each different size, making it easy to see which size is which at a glance! The Deluxe Interchangeable Needle Set includes 9 pairs of 4.5″ tips from US sizes= 4, 5 – 11, 4 cables (one 24″, two 32″, and one 40″), a case to hold your cables, 8 end caps, 4 cable keys, and a set of needle size ID tags, all organized in a clear vinyl case. And the Dreamz Interchangeable Tunisian Hook Set  includes US sizes E – L,  4 cables (one 24″, two 32″, and one 40″), 8 end caps, 4 cable keys, a clear vinyl case and tunisian hook connectors to join two hooks together.

What exciting deals will you take advantage of in the April portion of the Sale? Or have you already! And don’t forget, a whole new selection of yarns goes on Sale May 1st!

I have to tell you, even I was surprised by the luxury fibers in this year’s sale! We have 6 yarns with cashmere!

If you’re looking for a workhorse yarn for incredible garments that has just a little extra oomph we’ve got two choices for you.  Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran is a classic,  a machine washable blend of 55% Merino Wool/33% Microfibre/12% Cashmere in over 3 dozen saturated solids is perfect for trend defying garments and accessories that you’ll wear for years.

With over 30 colors to choose from it’s ideal for colorwork projects. And if you want a little hand dyed color in your cashmere stash, pick up a few skeins of Mrs. Crosby Hat Box. the color wizards at Lorna’s Laces have dreamed up all new colorways reminiscent of exoctic locales and travels.

On the finer side, if you’re a lace or shawl person Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere is another gorgeous hand-dyed yarn with a superwash merino, cashmere and nylon blend that would be gorgeous for shawls and durable enough for incredible socks! But my favorite of the cashmere yarns in this sale has to be the Greylock from Valley Yarns. This beauty is 100% cashmere, lightly spun and plied for an airy yarn with the slightest halo. It’s soft and squishy with an incredibly generous 300 yds in each ball.

That Greylock is honestly calling my name, and the JoSharp has my wheels turning. Which yarns will you be adding to your stash?

Special Fiber Packs for Spring Training!

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

We are going all in with the sports metaphors this year. We already have the Tour de Fleece in July; we needed a spring equivalent and what better event to represent skill building than Spring Training? In my last post I talked about the event we are having on March 13 – be sure to check it out and sign up if you are in the area.

Spring training is about more than the event, however. We created some great fiber pack specials to add excitement and zip to your spinning life. We started with an assortment of fibers and blends from Louet to keep things interesting and encourage spinners to try new fibers. Then we asked our friends at Frabjous Fibers to dye an exclusive colorway just for Spring Training and we added that to the pack. And because we love bonuses, we added a (not so) little bag as the icing on the cake.

Spring Training Fiber Packs at WEBS. Read more on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

The Rookie Pack features easy-to-spin fibers that are perfect for newer spinners, with enough variety to keep you from getting bored. There’s a half-pound of Blue Faced Leicester and another half-pound of Falkland, and for some fun color play there are 4 different 4-ounce bags of dyed Corriedale. The Frabjous Fiber Take Me Out to the Ballpark colorway is dyed in BFL and will amaze you with a gradient of luscious hues from the ballpark – green grass, blue skies and a touch of brown (that’s either the pitcher’s mound or the color of your uniform after sliding in to home plate).

The All Star Pack brings some different players to the field with half-pound bags of Masham, Light Grey Romney, and Medium Grey Romney. We added some color with a half-pound bag of dyed Merino/Silk and then sprinkled in a 2 ounce bag of Camel/Silk for a touch of luxury. This pack also contains 4 ounces of the exclusive Take Me Out to the Ballpark colorway, this time in a BFL/Silk base.

Remember the surprise I hinted about? As a special bonus, when you buy either of the fiber packs, you will get a free gift – a cotton tote bag for carrying your fiber and yarn. This bag is sturdy and roomy enough for some serious stash, with great shoulder straps to make it easy to carry and WEBS’ Spring Training logo on the outside pocket.

I’m pretty excited to dive into these packs (um, yeah, I may be buying both packs) and feel what it’s like to spin some fibers I haven’t tried yet. I’m not sure if I’ll start with the Romney (maybe a marled 2-ply with the two shades of grey?) or the Take Me Out to the Ballpark (maybe a Navajo ply?). Which of these would be your first choice?
